The strike involves PSAC members at Treasury Board and the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
What services could be affected?
According to the PSAC, the public can expect delays and disruptions to several government services.
- Employment Insurance
- Passport applications
There is also talk of a complete halt in the processing of income tax returns, disruptions to supply and trade activities at ports and airports, and slowdowns at border posts, where administrative staff will also be on strike.
